JB Priestley’s Mother’s Day is a humorous portrayal of a mother being treated as a doormat by her family (typical of its time, 1953) and her neighbour and friend who shows she doesn’t have to put up with this behaviour – to the confusion of her pompous husband and spoilt children.
Post-war austerity, rationing, cold and bleak: a group of friends grumble in a pub in north-east London (The Rose and Crown, 1946) apart from one cheerful chap. Then a stranger joins them…
In Dream Jobs, by Graham Jones, a group of teenagers fantasise over their romantic, exciting ideal jobs, but reality intervenes.
Bus routes are not bad – 212 and W16 go up Fulbourne Road, get off just after bridge over the North Circular, with the mini-roundabout (Wadham Road), then 150m to the theatre along the footpath to the next mini-roundabout (Hale End Road). It’s on the corner of Hale End Road and Wadham Road, there’s a path directly down to the theatre. Click here for Google Map
